Darts team keep Mayor's prostate cancer campaign on target

Rugby Editorial 4th Jun, 2014 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016   0

A DARTS team has donated a cheque to the Mayor’s charity, St Cross Prostate Cancer Care.

The Indian Social Club team presented Tony Gillias with a cheque for £151.

The team, based at the Indian Community Centre in Edward Street, has competed in the Rugby and District Darts League for more than 25 years.

The cash was raised throughout the season by fining players for a variety of misdemeanours on the oche, including low scores and missing the board.




The team has raised nearly £1,000 for good causes in recent years.

The St Cross Prostate Cancer Care charity aims to launch a prostate cancer clinic at Rugby’s Hospital of St Cross, reducing the time it takes to provide a diagnosis and helping patients avoid trips to Coventry’s University Hospital during the early stages of treatment.


Coun Gillias said: “I am extremely grateful to the Indian Social Club darts team for this generous donation to St Cross Prostate Cancer Care.

“It’s important to have diagnostic facilities at St Cross, together with help and support from health professionals. A successful appeal will speed up diagnosis and mean local men no longer have to travel to Coventry for tests.”
